Binance, the biggest exchange by trade volumes, has just announced support for purchasing Ripple's XRP along with Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and Binance Coin (BNB) by binding Visa debit/credit cards.  

For now, the Malta-based exchange only supports those countries that belong to the European Economic Area (EEA).

After initially allowing its users to add new Visa cards, Binance claims that it will also support Mastercard, another leader in the global payment sphere. On top of that, the exchange will also add additional cryptocurrencies that can be bought directly with your credit card. 

Binance introduced an option that lets users purchase Bitcoin, XRP and other digital assets with credit cards thorough Israel-based payment provider Simplex back in January. That was the first step for developing the exchange's fiat gateways. The big difference is that users can now add their debit/credit cards directly without relying on the third-party company.
